One of the funniest moments of the season

The Mission Prep girls beat View Park Prep in the So-Cal regional semis on Thursday night. The Royals are on to the regional finals for the 11th time since 1989. No biggie. They're ranked No. 1. They expect to be there.

Check out this anecdote though, the laugh out loud moment of the season.

Here's some forshadowing: At halftime, a small boy from from the View Park side who looked just days out of diapers was putting on a dance show near the media table. He was good. No doubt he could have served more than half of downtown SLO on college night.

And when he was doing his thing, the game was pretty close. It was up for grabs until Leigh Yetter took over with nine points in the third quarter, and Mission Prep outscored the Knights 14-2.

So to start the fourth quarter, the Royals student section starts doing that "We Will Rock You" stomp. You know. Stomp-Stomp, Clap! Stomp-Stomp,Clap! Like that.

Then the entire Mission Prep side of the stands starts doing it. It's pretty cool.

But it gets cooler when the other side of the gym, the people at the media table and the View Park fans look to the right of the Royals students — and guess who's cutting the rug all by his lonesome?

Yup, the Tear-da-club-up Toddler.

We all assumed after his team fell so far behind, he just switched sides.

To further the hilarity, an embarrassed-looking Knights fan had to run across the gym to grab the little boy and escort him back the View Park stands.

Maybe you should learn how to speak English before you start passing judgment on other people. Right now you just sound like an illiterate jackass. Obviously you didn't go to Mission, because they would have taught you "more better."

The way Scroggin covers Mission girls basketball you'd think his girlfriend was on the team. Seriously its not that exciting.

Royer for POY. No doubt, I have played with him for a long time, he deserves it.

POY- Dylan for sure. w/o question.

but if the girl comes from mission because of all their 'accomplishments'. and not because you can find the best player in the county there(not the case)wow. that says a lot about the trib.

If not Yetter from Mission, who do you nominate for girls POY? Ikeda from AG? DeWitt from Nipomo? Saia from Morro Bay?
